Zhentong Supplication


A Supplication to the Profound Zhentong Madhyamaka Lineage

Composed by the great Jonang master Jetsun Taranatha (1575-1653) with added verses by the modern Jonang scholar Khenpo Ngawang Lodro Drakpa (1920-75), this supplication to the zhentong masters traces this unbroken and distinctive Zhentong Madhyamaka lineage from its ancient Indian ancestors up to the present living masters. Serving as a genealogical record for this sutra transmission line, these verses of poetic supplication to the generations of primary zhentong masters is an invaluable resource for understanding the history of this philosophical and contemplative tradition.
